Summary: "During the darkest days of the Great Depression, twenty-five percent of the nation's workforce was hopelessly unemployed. America teetered on the brink of a revolution. In desperation, President Franklin Roosevelt created the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a program which took unemployable young men off the streets and put them to work in rural areas. There, they could work on the country's woefully battered environment. The CCC became Roosevelt's most successful New Deal Program. From 1933 to 1942, the young men replanted the nation's forests, cheked soil erosion, stopped the scourge of forest fires, built recreation sites through out the land, and completed countless other projects. Simply put the CCC saved our environment! As significantly, the CCC restored the men's faith in themselves and in their country! The Civilian Conservation Corps: a Peaceful Revolution, chronicles this tumultuous time in America's history against the backdrop of the Pennsylvania Lumber Heritage Region"-- Container.
